This week, my post is a bit different....
I have been working on my sewing room, painting, cleaning out, etc. I needed a table for sewing, and have several of these old brown, HEAVY tables in my shed that we save for when we have a garage sale. I was going to buy a sewing table, but decided I could re-purpose something I already had and did not really use by turning it into something I will enjoy a lot.
Well....this one is not so ugly now. (All the pics I took were when the table was wet, once this dried, the bubbles have disappeared) I was just too lazy to retake the photos.
I have a few vintage sewing patterns I found at a local church sale, I decided to use the pattern jackets and decorate my new sewing table.
Wrapping paper, scrapbooking paper, vintage patterns, scrapbook embellishments and Mod Podge all were used in the transformation of this ugly brown table.
I just love the graphics on the front of vintage sewing patterns.
What do you think? I still have a couple more coats of Mod Podge to put on top. I used the Hard finish Mod Podge for furniture. Once that has cured, I will seal the top with sealer and it should be ready to go. I will set my sewing machines on this table. I plan to find some plain fabric and staple to the underneath side for skirting, and added storage. (Did you happen to notice the cute little wiener dogs in the corners???) Sophie's idea...totally....I swear!
I know this was a bit different for me this week, but the patterns are vintage, and truth be told, this old table may be real close to being vintage itself!!
Have a great week everyone!
